A pine cone sits in the sand waiting for it’s seeds to take root to grow into a new tree. It’s not common to see a lot of sand in Wisconsin but it’s there in a few places. This was taken in a park that I went to hoping to find one thing but ended up finding another. With the wide angle lens on hoping to get some nice landscape shots, I had to switch over to the macro lens and look at the smaller picture. I’m always glad I carry multiple lenses with me when I visit places.
On a side note, I know this is technically a photography blog and even changing the title doesn’t help that the url still has “photography” in it, but I have been debating on whether or not to share a fiction story I’ve worked on with others here. After doing this small snippet I have been pondering on whether or not to start sharing my story piece by piece which may give me some motivation to finally get to finishing it. In short I basically came up with a unique story line and created a whole new world with a map and towns with back stories to family histories and a lot of things. In other words, I’ve already put a lot of time into this. I started it back in 2006 and worked on it every chance I could find but never really got anywhere, especially once I started a family and got a day job. And now with photography I’ve got even less time. I’ve got the outline done to do three books so all I really need to do is just fill in the details. So here’s where you all come into play. I don’t really want to post any of it if no one is interested so is there anyone that would be interested in reading my work even though this is a photography blog? I don’t really want to create a second blog since it’s hard enough to keep up with one. Thanks!
